Our Beautiful World - Bird

Our Beautiful World is a challenge blog for everyday photographers to share pictures from around the world.  This week's word prompt is Bird.  I have to admit to a lifestyle that doesn't photograph many live birds, so I couldn't think of anything to contribute.  I did remember my son, when he was a young toddler and would look the sky to find airplanes.  Often he would mix up birds and planes, calling them both airplanes in his mangled early English.  This brought to mind these double winged planes we saw at the opening of the Fiesta Bowl parade earlier this month.

These planes are "birds" of a kind as they flew together in formation giving us a short show before the start of the parade.  I snapped these photos waiting to see my gorgeous daughter, Katie, march with her high school band.

It was a beautiful day here in Phoenix and the planes gave us quite a show.  How about you join us with pictures of your own bird(s)?
